They purchased it in 1976 in California from his father. He purchased it in 1968 from my brother, the original owner. He purchased it somewhere in Florida in 1965. We drove the car until 1987 when the motor started smoking like an old diesel tractor. Put into storage until 2008. brought home to restore.

Maybe we can get some pics as the restore process takes place?

This 1981 Grand Prix was purchased in 2011 from his sister-in law after his brother passed away. He purchased it new in 1981 in San Antonio, TX. The car runs and drives like the great Pontiac it is. The August 2014 issue of Smoke signals has it on page 27, looking shined up. Here it sits on the trailer:

Ron would like to say, not everyone drives Goats…

Jim has owned since 1985(he is the third owner) was a daily driver till approximately 1996. The car was driven rarely, just enough to keep things working until 2015. The Cragar wheels have been removed and replaced with factory wheels. The clock shows over 250,000 miles and Jim knows it’s correct because he bought it just before 100,000 miles. These are original motor miles. It’s been a great car over the years. It is exciting to be in process of restoration and more time driving.

Chris has made several significant changes to his GTO since his first three posted pictures back in early 2016. He replaced the stock 15 X 7 Rally II’s with 17X 8 American Racing rims and 220/50R17 tires. He also put Wilwood disc brakes on all four corners and converted back to a manual brake system. However, after just a couple of months he was not real happy with the manual brake system. So, he installed a HydroBoost brake system that taps into the hydraulic pressure from the power steering system. Works like a charm! He finally gave up on the factory air and replaced it with a Vintage Air system. Well worth the time, effort, and money spent. To the extent possible, he has replaced all the lights with LED. Brighter and easier to see. He will probable go with LED headlight next. With these older classic cars it is a never ending project!
